A Pirate of Exquisite Mind, The Life of William Dampier

A marvelously well researched, absorbing biography of the 17th century English explorer, sea captain naturalist and buccaneer. Long our favorite pirate, it's a pleasure to see the accomplishments of the swashbuckler laid out so effectively. A master navigator and map-maker, Dampier circumnavigated the globe three times, wrote a series of best-selling books, and reached Australia 80 years before Captain Cook.

Authors: Michael Preston & Diana Preston

NHA Staff Recommendation:
"This book tells the story of one of the most well-traveled men in the world – who circumnavigated the globe no fewer than three times – and was one of its earliest naturalists. The tales of William Dampier’s adventures from Virginia to Australia make him one of my favorite pirates. His early sketches of wildlife in the Galapagos are said to have inspired Darwin himself to visit the Islands. All in all, a great read for those who love adventure!" - Aly Woodward
